You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.

Everybody loves the fragrance of this flower. I have it in a pot on the side of the house and can smell its sweet scent all the way to the front.
Very interesting plant that smells very sweet and blooms through the short days of winter in new york on a southern facing window sill. Great plant for an annual or keeping it for years and rarely out of bloom.
